Freddie Mac executive: Suicide?

Libertarian Republican blogger Eric Dondero says he's getting bombarded with traffic after linking the story of the apparent suicide of Freddie Mac Chief Financial Officer David Kellermann:
David Kellermann, Acting Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President of Freddie Mac, was found dead this morning.
Fairfax County Police officials tell 9NEWS NOW they responded to his home around 5 a.m. after his wife alerted them to his apparent suicide.
Police say Kellermann, 41 years old, was found in the basement of the home.
UPDATE: Via Memeorandum, more news reports from Associated Press, the Washington Post and CBS News. BTW, please say a prayer for Mr. Kellerman's family, who must not only deal with the loss of a loved one, but also will now find themselves at a center of a massive firestorm of media speculation.

Expect further updates . . .


  1. Coincidences do occur in nature. With that being said, we must be absolutely vigilant in pursuing the facts surrounding this man's apparent suicide.

  2. Barney and Chris have a fall guy. I wonder if he's ever been to Fort Marcy Park?

  3. Oh, this hurts - a friend of mine shot himself Sunday...

    Heartfelt condolences to friends and family.

  4. Have they found out conclusively about what caused Kellermann's death? All things considered, it seems doubtful that this was a suicide
